Newcrest Orange Challenge
Preparing for your ride
Our Newcrest Orange Challenge ambassadors don’t only ride on event day, they also put in time and effort during their training to help keep your preparation on track.
Whether you’re looking for a riding buddy or just need to dust off the winter cobwebs, they’re the perfect opportunity to get your legs ride ready.
Stay tuned, our 2021 training rides kick off in June. Be sure to follow the Bicycle Network strava club so you’re the first to hear when new ride dates are released.GO TO STRAVA

Five week training plans
Our friends at Karmea have helped create Newcrest Orange Challenge training plans for all three ride distances to support you on your riding journey. The five week training plans kick off on Monday 9 August 2021 to help dial in your preparation in the lead up to the event.
There is no better way to achieve something amazing than by smashing what you thought wasn’t possible – now is your chance to set your goal and start training.
